The first burial occurred in 1879. The cemetery was originally to be laid out in four sections: Episcopalian (northwest), Catholic (northeast), and other denominations (southwest and southeast). A later plan shows three sections: Anglican, Presbyterian and Non Conformist.
The funds of the Kirwee Cemetery Board were exhausted by 1896, and at that time, tenders were put out for grazing sheep in the cemetery and, later on, cropping. In 1913, owing to the low use of the cemetery and very little income being received, a portion of the grounds were fenced off and let for grazing.
The Malvern County Council was asked to take over the cemetery in 1921. Currently operated by the Selwyn District Council.
